Problem adding Interactive Google map using Text Widget

  1. I am using Twenty Ten on WordPress.com.

    I successfully added an interactive Google map to a Page, but thought it would be better to have it in the widget column. I used the Text Widget, and entered the exact same code into the box presented:

    [googlemaps http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Brooks+Road,+Lewes&sll=50.878479,0.016522&sspn=0.012293,0.027595&gl=uk&ie=UTF8&hnear=Brooks+Rd,+Lewes,+East+Sussex+BN7+2,+United+Kingdom&source=embed&hq=&ll=50.878046,0.016522&spn=0.005416,0.008626&z=15&iwloc=A&output=embed&w=200&h=200%5D

    All I see on my page is the html, instead of the map.

    I thought maybe the map was too wide, so changed the width and height to 150, but that did not make my map appear.

    Can anyone help?

    The blog I need help with is leweshistory.org.uk.

  2. Unfortunately, you can not add Google Maps to your sidebar. You could use the Email or IM link from Google Maps and place it in a text widget. See here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/google-maps/

  3. thank you timethief. Wierdly, when I used the link, the arrow which shows the desired location is in a different place from where it is on the url link. Obviously this is a Google problem......

  4. I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Have you reported this to Staff? I'm thinking they may want to know this problem exists. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/
